Turboimagehost seems OK

I want a picture host that doesn't suddenly open pop-under windows or any other pop-up(and yes I do use a pop-up blocker) for any sort of product AND one that doesn't make you wait for ten seconds whilst clicking on a bloody advert.

I have a slow connection. Takes too long uploading a couple of JPG's from other image hosts.

I've been using hotflick to replace most of my imagebam thumbs so far, with a few exceptions. I like the convenience, speed and the gallery options. But although the host advertises up to 6MB, I've found that some images smaller than 6MB are rejected without notice, so in a group of many, it's hard to tell which ones successfully uploaded and which did not, without comparing the thumbs to your source one at a time.

In my case, most of my posts are movies, not mags or picture sets, so I'm not as concerned about galleries being complete. If one or two images are rejected by hotflick, then I can either use the default upload tool for pimpandhost to add the missing pics, or if too large (5000KB or more), I've been using imagezilla, which has a 10MB limit and custom-sized thumbs (I set it at 180 pixels), but no gallery option.

Some of my posts have only two or three images, in which case I find it easiest to just use the default pimpandhost tool. It makes replacing the imagebam thumbs easier than going back and forth between tabs, and since my goal is to replace as many imagebam pics as possible over the next few weeks, flexibililty is key.

Update: Yesterday, I had no luck getting turboimagehost to work. But today I finally got it working, and it seems like a much better choice for galleries than any others I've tried. Only caveat so far is you have to create and name an album before you can upload images to it (and names are maximum 20 characters long), although I was able to move images from the default "my images" album into a newly created album after the fact.

Turboimagehost has another major plus: it retains original file names -- even when you hover the cursor you can read the file name. One minor drawback: no 180x180 pixel thumbnail option, but the 150x150 is okay by me.

For your information we have approved PixHost to be used at VEF, and that thumbnails of 200 x 200 are OK.

Just a proposal: wouldn't it make sense to continue discussing this topic in the new Imagebam/Imgbox-rescue section in order to pool our strengths?

I have been using PiXhost for a couple of days and so far so good. You should use the "create a gallery" option (which creates links) when posting so that others can easily move from one image to another if they want to see them full size.

I hope that PiXhost doesn't go toes up. I may mix in another host or two so I don't lose thousands of posts again.

I hope that my experiences help others.

Yes and No,
Makes sense to me at least that we have one here also, reason is that some members just don't go to the help section.

We see this and can pass on something useful from here into the other thread with a link from here.

Default rehost script ?

This seems like a disaster!!

Is there any way to write a script to sweep through posts and rehost images that are hosted on Imagebam and Imgbox ? I'm guessing 70% plus of images on VEF will 404. Admittedly only having 15 days for this is not much time to do that. I will be greatly saddened to see so much content disappear - including 100% of my own posts.

Take a look at Discussion of the download / upload tools and Technical solutions for downloading. That's why I proposed...

The last post (from a responsible moderator) could provide a link there, and the Mod would close this thread then. Some other similar threads were treated the like, example - just another proposal only, of course. I don't want to intrude into somebody's preserves.
